In this highly participatory music theory workshop, we will analyze in depth some unusual patterns of harmony and melody across a range of alternative music: tracks by the alt-rock bands Radiohead and Portishead, the singer-songwriters Bjork and Sufjan Stevens, the "alt-classical" composer Max Richter, the alternative electronic artists Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, and Autechre.  Student work will include weekly model compositions, and a final presentation and paper.
